About the Author

Brianna grew up on a chicken farm in central New Jersey. Her great aunt lived in the original family home, a less grand version of Stobe House. After finishing high school, Brianna shot across the country to Washington State to visit a pen pal, and so loved that part of the country she never left. She and her husband now live in a rural town where he teaches high school and she keeps a flock of Rhode Island Reds and writes. They don't have an icehouse, but they do have their own arrangement...

I enjoyed this mostly sweet, sometimes sexy book. If you have not read the first two books in the series, you may find it easier to go read the first two to discern who the different characters are. That being said, I think if you accept that there are several different characters who are not explained from the beginning, but who develop over time, it can be the first read of the series. I enjoyed that Edouard’s role as Maître was separated from his romantic relationship with Chessie. I think that Chessie needed for it to be seperate in order to be effective for her. For Chessie, it is not a sexual experience but a method of stress relief and behavior modification. She needs the release from her past in order to move forward with her life. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this book and the whole series. After receiving this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, I purchased the first two and read all three in a row. It's important to read them in order as there are many characters and the relationships are complex. The characters are well developed and represent the diversity that exists in the real world. I love that the author created a group of characters who form an extended family, accepting each other and helping each other when needed. Chessie is Calum's ex-wife and a widow from her unofficial second marriage to a woman; at no point does anyone mention her sexual orientation and I think that is wonderful. I applaud the author for avoiding the labeling that our society seems to cling to. The plot deals with the struggles and emotional turmoil of past tragedy and everyday life. It's very interesting and flows nicely. The book is very well written with descriptive scenery and meaningful dialogue. I highly recommend this book and I'm looking forward to the next one.

IN FOR A PENNY, IN FOR A POUND The story is a continuation of the Jersey Spanks series and has a huge cast of characters that are interwoven into a complex and somewhat complicated network of relationships and family ties. The story takes the reader on an emotional journey for Chessie as she is raising her daughter, Livvy. Chessie’s lover, died shortly after she gave birth to Livvy, and then Livvy became very ill as a young child, so Chessie is so protective, over-protective and it has started taking an emotional and mental toll on her and her daughter’s recovery. The plot revolves around Chessie moving back to the US from Wales, helping her parents, dealing with her daughter’s health, physical and emotional needs and having numerous emotional breakdowns and panic attacks. When Maître Édouard invites Livvy to join his class to learn to dance, she is thrilled but her mother has control issues, and they come to a head and must be dealt with. Will domestic discipline help ground Chessie, allow her to let her daughter be a little girl and become a better person? There are so many people, with unique relationship connections that it takes a bit to straighten it all out. There are several discipline sessions and no sex in these stories.

I received this ARC copy for an honest review. Chessie lost her significant other, their daughter falling ill and becoming handicapped soon after. Chessie’s sole focus is now on their daughter, becoming over protective and harsh when she feels things aren’t going as she believes they should. They meet Edouard, who runs a dance school for handicapped children and everything changes. The ‘teacher’ teaches the parent and a new life unfolds for all.
